Warm Audio WA12 MKII

In a world of super-clean preamps that do little more than raise the volume of the input signal, Warm Audio delivers an exciting call-back to the days of vintage coloration: the WA12 MKII. If you're looking for a preamp that's simply going to pass along your signal, look elsewhere, the WA12 MKII was designed to warm, color, and shape your signal with Cinemag transformers and a custom take on the classic Melcor 1731 op-amp.

Being a completely discrete, dual transformer pre-amp means the WA-12 provides high gain, high headroom with low noise, and exceptional sonic performance, making it the ideal preamp for almost any recording project. A special tone button on the front panel switches input impedance from 150 to 600 ohms, changing both the tone of the Hi-Z and microphone inputs, allowing you to dial in the sound that works for you. The folks at Warm Audio really outdid themselves fine tuning the WA-12 MKII to give it a truly larger-than-life sound that you simply have to hear to believe.
